    When Love Orders Our Steps
    Series: Simple Faith
    Love that is superficial and reserved for people I like and who are on my team is normal. Anybody can do that. But chain-breaking, slave-embracing, oppression-defeating kind of love is supernatural. Only Jesus can love like that. That kind of love can change your life! Not only that, that kind of love can change your family . . . your workplace . . . your school . . . our community . . . our country . . . and even the world.

    Hope for All Times
    Series: Simple Faith
    There is a lot in our world that seems hopeless and, yet, we are hopeful people. Hope is such an important word. We need it, but we need the right kind of hope placed in the right source. Worldly is the desire for some good in the future and the wish that it might come true. That is common, but not enough. Christian hope, however, is the desire for God’s goodness and will for my future and the expectation that He will fulfill it. That is rare, but just what we need.

    Looking Past Pain to Peace
    Series: Simple Faith
    In our world peace seems to be lacking more than it is present. But we need peace. We hunger for it. The good news is that God gives us a peace that lives and grows in us even when the whole world seems to be going against us. It’s a peace that isn’t dependent on us, but is dependent on Him. And God’s peace even makes it possible for us to pursue peace with others.

    The Elusive Joy of Christmas
    Series: Simple Faith
    Christmas is all about expectations. We expect to find joy at Christmas, but sadly we look for it in the wrong places. True joy is not just a circumstantial emotion that comes and goes or something we can just conjure up on our own. True joy is an enduring state of well-being that comes from Jesus and His work in your life.
